    Dear Judith, my sister, Mary Ann Dawson, called me from her home in Scottsdale and told us about Jessie’s passing. Paula and I are so sorry for your loss and send you are most sincere condolences.

    I met you and Jessie in the middle of NYCity one evening many years ago, when I was in the city on business. I moved to Ohio to marry my wife of 57 years, Your husband was my cousin and his father and mother were my Uncle and Aunt respectively. In fact, I was born in the flat which they lived at 360 Revere Street in 1932.

    Some of my relatives in the Boston area are planning a Get-Together sometime this summer. I’ll send you an invitation, with directions, etc. We all would love to see you. God bless you. John & Paula
